  • Optimistic coalescing has been proven as an elegant and effective technique that provides better chances of safely coloring more registers in register allocation than other coalescing techniques. Its algorithm originally assumes homogeneous registers, which are all gathered in the same register file. Although this register architecture is still common in most general-purpose processors, embedded processors often contain heterogeneous registers, which are scattered in physically different… CONTINUE READING
